Dear CEO, I am applying for the best job ever – Life Remaker. I couldn’t help but see your ad – it seems women everywhere are going through the same thing. When they turn 50, husbands leave them for younger women in droves. I was unexpectedly hit with this Life Remaker task several years ago. I had to apply for this new career myself. Redoing your Life Resume is an acquired skill. Perhaps some tips would be helpful.
Below I am listing a few of the Special Skills I have had to learn as a result of dealing with my New Life post-Ex. I think it’s fair to say I can call myself an “Ex-pert!”
My Life Remaker skills include but are not limited to:
Professional Emotional Shredder Operator
Discarder of Old Emotions
Expert Conflict Resolution with lying cheaters
Certified Non Reactor: Withholding shocked and angry facial expressions while being lied to
“New Self” Starter
Self Berating Extinguisher
Guru of How Great My Life Is Going
Works well with mentally healthy others who do not blame me for their hurtful actions
Developer of a brand new operating system.
Never freaked out by minor bug fixes and updates that improve my point of view on life.
Determination Skill Level:
Being scared but doing things anyway
I feel the above listed Life Remaking skills would make me an asset to your team, as I clearly am adept at leading my new life!
I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience. If not, I will exercise my other newly acquired technique: looking for greener pastures.
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
